New Delhi [India] Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi on Monday wished the countrymen on 76th Independence Day and said that the country has always lived up to its pluralism and diversity.
“In the last 75 years, India has left an indelible mark on the international arena in all fields including science, education, health and information technology through the hard work of its talented Indians,” the veteran Congress leader stated. “India established a free, fair and transparent election system under the leadership of its visionary leaders while strengthening democracy and constitutional institutions,” she added.
“Along with this, India has made its proud identity as a leading country that has always lived up to its pluralism and diversity.”
Taking a dig at the present government, the Congress interim president said that today’s government is hell-bent on trivializing the great sacrifices of the country’s freedom fighters and their glorious achievements. This, she said, can never be accepted.
“Indian National Congress will strongly oppose any misrepresentation of historical facts for political gains and every attempt to put great national leaders like Gandhi-Nehru-Patel-Azad Ji in the dock on the ground of falsity,” she asserted.
